Love in a Drink

I've been missing spending time with Justin...not because either one of us doesn't want to spend time together, it's just all the dang homework!

It's on days like these that I like to think of little things like this...

He made me some hot chocolate a little while back, and NO KIDDING, when he brought the cup in to me, the marshmallows had floated into a heart shape!!

Oh how I love that boy!

Convention Re-Cap!

Well, Convention has come and gone already!  I can't believe all the months, weeks, hours of preparation and it went by so fast!  It was spectacular!  It was awesome!  I've heard nothing but good words from everyone...I am so proud!!  Here's some fun pix for your enjoyment!

Convention is only a day away!

Well, I'm sitting up in my hotel room (by myself tonight) and thinking of trying to go to sleep...the only problem is I'm totally not tired!  And, what's even crazier about that, you might ask?  I only slept for 3 hours last night!  How can I not be tired after barely sleeping last night, and working all day today (standing on cement floor)??  I think it's because of my ageLOC Vitality!

That's the new, amazing, awesome, beneficial product supplement we're launching this week at the Nu Skin Americas Regional Convention in Salt Lake.  See a pic of it below!

So, I don't blog for my Company, but seriously, I can't believe how much I love this product already!  I feel great, and even if I stop working for Nu Skin someday, this is one product I'm totally going to have to shell out the cash to keep buying!  I've never seen so many testimonials coming in every single day from more and more people who've already tried it.

What can I say?  I love it!!!

The Lower Lights and a great weekend!

I had such a great weekend!  Starting out with a hot date with my Justin on Friday.  We went to a really fun concert, part of the new Provo "Downtown Rooftop Concert Series" which is being sponsored by one of my FAVORITE bloggers ever:  Courtney Kendrick of C Jane Run.

This concert on Friday featured a group of local bands and singers who went in together on this new project calling themselves collectively "The Lower Lights."  The group included Mindy Gledhill, Scott Wiley, Sarah Sample, and many others that I'm just becoming acquainted with.  Check out C Jane's blog for a quick sample of one of the songs they performed, or check out their website:

We also ran into several old friends that night; the Snow's and the Gray's just to name a few.  And...I got to talk to C Jane again, after just meeting her the night before at Stephanie's talk at BYU, and I got a photo!  Not the best of me, but she looks darling as usual!

Saturday I got to sleep in, watch LDS General Conference, went to a little Halloween party with the fam.  I wasn't originally planning on going, but decided to at the last moment even though I didn't even have a costume.  A quick Google search for "easy Halloween costumes" gave me an idea with stuff I already had in my closet.  I ended up going as a gypsy and only had to get a shirt, which I found at the DI for $4!  Woo hoo!  I didn't take any good photos, but will post some when I dress up again for the big day.   Then I saw The Social Network with my little sis Kellie.  It was pretty interesting, but I've heard a lot of it is fiction, so I didn't really know what to believe!

Today I got to watch the rest of Conference with my Justin all day!  It seems like it's been so long since we just had hours of time to spend together, just being with each other, and with nothing else we have to do to distract us.   I made us some waffles, eggs, and bacon for brunch, and everything was just so perfect!  This coming week he's got mid-terms and I'll be busy with Convention so I am just grateful that we had this time. :)

Tonight we celebrated the birthday of my lovely sister-in-law Mary Christmas!  Yes, that's her real, married name.  Awesome huh?  We ate delicious lasagna that my sweet step-mom made for us and played our family traditional game, Pounce!  I highly recommend it!  And just for fun, I couldn't resist posting a pic of my cutie pie nephew Owen!  Isn't he the cutest?

More in the mood... post that is!  I think I'm feeling a little more optimistic about life now that Convention is almost here and through!  I'm looking forward to the days were working a nearly mandatory 10 hours a day are over.  It won't be long lived though, January Kick-Off Meeting's will be right around the corner!

Tonight I was able to leave by 6:30 in order to go see my favorite blogger speak at BYU- Stephanie Nielson of the NieNieDialogues.  She was amazing!  I laughed, I cried, I mourned with her, I celebrated...what an experience, and oh how graceful and amazingingly she has come through!  If you weren't able to make it, it was recorded and will hopefully be online to watch within the next month or so.

And it's when I start to feel down about myself-- my shortcomings, how I wish my life was better, or different, or when I'm focusing on the negative, it SO helps to remember that others have been through A LOT of trials in their lives too.

And I remember to thank God for mine, because I can't imagine going through anyone else's!
